Sustanon is without question the most popular testosterone mixture on the planet. Where most testosterone compounds are single ester compounds, Sustanon is comprised of four distinct testosterone esters. Four compounds conjoined into one. It is a blend of Testosterone Propianate-Testosterone Phenyl Propianate-Testosterone Isocaproate- and Testosterone Decanoate. Developed for the purpose of infrequent Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)
Sustanon has the ability to greatly enhance protein synthesis, this is important as protein is the building block of muscle tissue and synthesis represent the rate by-which cells build proteins. Further, Sust will enhance nitrogen retention in the muscle tissue; all lean muscle tissue is comprised of 16% nitrogen, and the more we retain the more anabolic we remain. While these two factors are primary and important traits, Sust is not done yet. Often ignored but truly valuable is this hormones ability to increase the production and release of Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1). IGF-1 is highly anabolic, a peptide hormone produced by all human beings and it plays important roles revolving around our total recovery; in-fact, IGF-1 will affect nearly every cell in the human body.
Enhanced protein synthesis, nitrogen retention and IGF-1 are all important factors, but Sustanon continues to not disappoint. Through supplementation, red blood cell count is increased, and as red blood cells carry oxygen to and through the blood this results in greater blood oxygenation.
A hormone that aromatizes heavily, like all testosterone compounds. Sustanon can lead to adverse estrogen effects. Further, due to its heavy androgenic activity, this is a steroid that cannot be recommended to women or virilization will occur. If therapeutic treatment is needed a single ester compound such as Test Enanthate or Cypionate is easier to control. As for performance enhancement such as BodyBuilding, dosages are in the range from 400mg to 1000 mg per week. In most cases 400-600mg per week is sufficient and can be ran from 8 to 16 weeks before needing to cycle down or cruise.
